Step by step keema hari mirch recipe Pakistani
If you want simple, easy, quick and hearty meal, try this Keema hara masala recipe. The aroma of fresh coriander and the spice of sliced chillies when blended with sweetness of half-cooked onions and served with lemon and yogurt. It’s a unique combination which is great for summer lunch.
This qeema is my kid’s favourite. You can have it with warm rice or chapati and yogurt. It’s such a soul warming humble feast.
This is my mother in law’s recipe. I’m using a more safe method in cooking this. That is, I fry onion and chillies first, set aside and then cook qeema. Since, a little over cooking dissolve the onion slices.
Otherwise, we also add raw sliced onions and chillies in the last and cook it for just few minutes. You can use whatever method that works best for you. You may add less or no potatoes.
